  • Description

    A spokesman for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Oman and the Arabian Gulf (PFLOAG), Mohammed Seif, talked with newsmen in Beirut on Tuesday (21 January) and denounced the presence of Iranian troops in Oman.

    The Iranian soldiers are fighting for Sultan Qabus Bin Said who has been waging war on the guerrillas for the last nine years, mainly in the western part of the province of Dhofar near the Yemeni border where the guerrillas have safe bases.

    Mr. Seif also spoke about a United States proposal to use the British air base on the island of Masiral, just off the Omani coast.

    This film is serviced with a commentary in Arabic followed by an interpreter's translation in English. A transcript of the English follows:
    "From this it is clear that the participants of Iran in this way is not only to confront the Oman revolution but also - in the first place -- to confront the Arab revolution. Secondly to keep and preserve the Imperialist interests in the area, particularly the oil resources. Thirdly, to dominate the area and consequently to dominate all resources in the area."
